Block a gene and live 12 more years.
 
Blocking a gene in mice helped them live 15% longer without any side effects. In humans, switching off that single gene could extend life by 12 years and make elderly people fitter. The gene Myc is important in cell division, growth and death, however, when it is over-active, it can cause cancer. Limiting the gene, on the contrary, extends life, makes the mice fitter, and prevents them from developing age related conditions. The mice have a healthier immune system. 

John Sedivy, professor of medical science said: “The animals are definitely aging slower. They are maintaining the function of their organs and tissues for longer periods of time. These mice are incredibly normal, yet they are really long-lived.”

#Spillover  effects of the #affordablecareact  
The Affordable Care Act, which is reducing the number of unpaid medical bills at the nation’s hospitals, is also mitigating some of the property tax burden for those counties, cities and other municipalities that have -- for decades -- subsidized medical care for the uninsured at publicly-owned health facilities. A snapshot [...]

Why do people persist in believing things that just aren't true? The Backfire Effect.  http://www.newyorker.com/online/blogs/mariakonnikova/2014/05/why-do-people-persist-in-believing-things-that-just-arent-true.html
To change false beliefs, appealing to a person’s sense of self may be more important than the facts.
